Heat Stroke - Heat Exhaustion Treatment

Vitamin C
Posted by Christine (Virginia Beach, USA) on 04/15/2008

When the body is under stress, the need for Vitamin C goes up. Unlike other creatures, we can't make our own Vitamin C and do not have an appetite for it.

A study done years ago demonstrated that using Vitamin C will prevent heat exhaustion. Best bet: use sodicum ascorbate because it is buffered and won't hurt your stomach.
